- ItemElucidating the Kinetics of β-amyloid Fibril Formation(American Chemical Society, 2005) Edwin, Nadia J.; Bantchev, Grigor B.; Russo, Paul S.; Hammer, Robert P.; McCarley, Robin L.The formation of β-Amyloid peptide (Aβ1-40) aggregates was monitored by dynamic light scattering. Various sizes of materials may be present throughout the aggregation process, but small scatterers are difficult to detect in the presence of large ones. Fluorescence photobleaching recovery studies on 5-carboxyfluorescein-labeled Aβ1-40 peptide solutions readily confirmed the presence of large and small species simultaneously. The effects of dye substitution on the aggregation behavior of Aβ1-40 peptide are subtle, but should not prevent further investigations by fluorescence photobleaching recovery or other fluorescence methods.
- Itemβ-amyloid Protein Aggregation(Humana Press, 2007) Etienne, Marcus A.; Edwin, Nadia J.; Aucoin, Jed P.; Russo, Paul S.; McCarley, Robin L.; Hammer, Robert P.The β-amyloid peptide aggregates via a nucleation pathway where micellar aggregates propagate to form oligomers (protofibrils), which then polymerize into insoluble fibrils. This fibrillogenic process has been linked to the pathogenesis associated with Alzheimer’s disease. One purpose of this chapter is to provide a protocol for reliably producing monomeric Aβas a starting point for physical and biological studies. Many research groups have used organic solvents to disaggregate pre-seeded Aβ in an attempt to acquire monomeric starting materials. Others have used instrumental techniques such as size exclusion chromatography to isolate monomer, structural intermediates, and fibrils and study their affects on A β nucleation. This chapter discusses a modified method of A βpreparation using organic solvents followed by dissolution into aqueous phosphate buffer systems that renders monomeric A β starting solutions for kinetic experiments. Additionally, this chapter details a number of physical techniques such as scanning force microscopy, circular dichroism spectroscopy, transmission electron microscopy, fluorescence spectroscopy, fluorescence photobleaching recovery, and dynamic light scattering, together with physiological techniques such as cell viability assays to characterize Aβ nucleation, aggregation, and fibrillization and the potential biological activity of the various A βparticles.

- ItemUnderstanding Rhetoric, Understanding Genre: A Rhetorical Genre Studies Approached Writing Course(2018) Austin, SaraIn this chapter, Austin foregrounds the concept of genre in the college writing classroom, expanding her scope beyond the traditional rhetoric of argument and persuasion central to most first-year writing courses. In doing so, she mobilizes an invitational rhetoric tradition, which Sonja J. Foss, and Cindy L. Griffin define as “an invitation to understanding as a means to create a relationship rooted in equality, immanent value, and self-determination… [It] constitutes an invitation to the audience to enter the rhetor’s world and see it as the rhetor does” (5). Austin highlights this focus on genre and form with Elizabeth Losh and Jonathan Alexander’s Understanding Rhetoric: A Graphic Guide to Writing, a graphic novel-format composition textbook, used in conjunction with The Bedford Guide to Genres, a combination that works to emphasize the wealth of possibilities and student agency engaged in choosing their form, critically considering genre, and embracing the combination of text, image, and multimodality possible within our contemporary academic writing context.
